You could walk to your destination, but you’ll get there a lot faster with a magical coach.

Who I Work With

I work with artists who KNOW they absolutely love to create art, but aren’t sure if they have what it takes to turn their art into something that makes money for them. They are interested in having their own business, but feel overwhelmed and unclear about what to do next, and how to stay consistent. They say and think things like:

“My biggest challenge is worrying about financial instability. Can I do the writing long term? Will it help pay the bills?”

And…

“I’m not the biggest ‘sales person.’ So what I most worry about is figuring out where and how to sell my product. It feels scary, and uncomfortable, and sometimes icky to try to sell my stuff. It feels like it’s not really who I am.”

And…

“I have a problem with consistency. How can I communicate consistently with my potential customers when I can’t even keep in touch with my friends very well? How can I create consistently enough to have a business when my I’m not even creating consistently in my just-for-fun time?”

Does this sound like you? Try out a session to get started.

“Genevieve is infectiously enthusiastic about life/design/finding your passion. [She] has been so inspiring and supporting, and has made all the difference in making sure I follow my dreams. I know that no matter how crazy my business idea seems, I will find support and practical solutions.” —Elizabeth Gillespie, Co-Founder of Inspired Wanderlust, Charlotte, NC

 

 

“Genevieve is simply warm and someone you can easily trust and open up to. After coaching, it was easier to accept myself as Genevieve accepts me implicitly.” —Monique McKellop, Writer & Jewelry Designer, West Coast, USA

 

“Unless you are incredibly focused and disciplined, and this is coming from an life-long athlete, you need accountability. Fairy Tale Life Coaching provides that and much more. It is so helpful to get the jumble of thoughts, dreams and worries out to a patient listening ear. Genevieve does a great job in directing you towards a goal with her questions, reflecting what she hears you saying, and giving you confidence that you can do it. After a coaching session, I have more direction and a specific list of things to do to get started on my book project. I feel hopeful and encouraged.” – Maria Parker, Founder, 3000 Miles to a Cure, Lumberton, NC

Is This You?

Starting a business is a place of growth for you. You’ve done the office job thing and you are now looking for greater fulfillment and a sense of contribution through running your own business. You want to bring a powerful sense of beauty and uplifting emotions into other people’s lives. You are willing to put in the long-term, consistent, love, effort, and creativity it takes to slowly but surely transition from your “day job” to building your own creativity-based business.

If this sounds like you, then booking coaching with me may be the thing you’ll look back on as one of the best choices you ever made for your life and income.

What Coaching IS

Coaching is accountability. Coaching is support, encouragement, and celebration. Coaching is deep listening and helping you access your own intuitive guidance and clarity.  Coaches are trained to create a safe space for the growth of the client, help the client process information, emotions, and intentions, and to help the client clearly see her own goals, actions to take, and a vividly delightful, exciting vision for her life and business.

What Coaching is NOT

Coaching is not consulting, counseling, or therapy. Consultants tell you what to do, and counselors and therapists help you fix your problems. Coaches provide a space for YOU do discover your own solutions. Coaches are not trained to deal with diseases of the mind or body.

What Kind of People Work with Coaches

People who choose to work with coaches are growth-oriented. They aren’t people with big problems. Rather, they are people who know that solving their problems, getting through obstacles, and continued growth happens by creating support structures for themselves. People who work with coaches know that life is all about surrounding yourself with people who love and support your dreams, growth, and goals no matter what.

Refund Policy for One-on-One Coaching

My refund policy applies to your first session of coaching. It allows you to get a full refund with no questions asked within 14 days of your first session.

There are plenty of reasons that we might not be a good coach/client match, and if that’s the case, then just send me a quick email to request your money back for a session. I do not offer refunds for the coaching packages, because artists who book those already know that I am a well-matched coach for them. If you aren’t sure if coaching with me is the best use of your money, I encourage you to book one session before booking any packages. If you decide to ask for a refund, please do so within 14 days of your first paid session. Requests for refunds after 14 days may not be honored. You will know almost instantly after our first session if coaching with me was valuable for you, your art, and your income. If you email me asking for a refund, my promise to you is that I won’t ask you any questions, but I will simply honor your request and give you a full refund for your session.

Rescheduling Policy for One-on-One Coaching Sessions

You can reschedule each session up to three times. There’s a 3-time rescheduling limit so that you can hold yourself accountable to getting the coaching you want. If you miss a session after rescheduling three times, that session is gone for good. Knowing that a session expires after rescheduling three times helps clients prioritize the needs and goals we are working on through coaching.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are your qualifications and training?

I was trained by life coach and entrepreneurial princess Marie Forleo in her group coaching program B-School.  I’m a member of Coachville and the IAPLC (International Association for Professional Life Coaches). There is no single standardized certification available for life coaches to pursue. However, there are many schools and programs that train life coaches.  I am constantly learning about coaching (I am obsessed with personal and business growth) and love to bring the latest practices, methodologies, and techniques I am learning from the coaching industry into my client’s lives. As an artist and entrepreneur, I understand the unique challenges we face when our free-spirited, authentic, and creative natures seem fenced in or limited by the technical or marketing aspects of running a business. Our goal together is to emulsify the two traits of creativity and entrepreneurism into one delicious, exhilarating, profitable ride between right brain and left brain, between making art and making money. Read even more about me here.

 

I don’t like the phrase “life coach.” But I like the idea of being coached. What to do?

Try getting playful with it. The word isn’t so important. Call it whatever you want.  Or, consider this: even Cinderella had to have a “coach” to get her to the ball, right? (And HOW many coachmen? HAHA! I’m so cheesy and I love it.) Hey, you don’t have to tell the world that you have a coach, but honestly, these days, many people do. Having a coach is a sign that you are serious about growth and learning to be truly helpful in the world by adding beauty, making art, making money, making a difference.

 

What happens after I click “Buy now” and pay for a coaching session?

Great question.  After clicking “Buy Now” you’ll be taken to a Paypal page that lets you pay for your session(s).

Once you purchase sessions(s), you’ll be taken to a page where you can set up a time that is good for us to talk.

All my coaching is done over the phone, Skype, or Google Video Calling, so at our appointed time I will call you and we will begin our 30-minute session.

Once we have a great session together, and you see and feel the benefits of coaching with me, I hope you will begin to take the steps you need to take in your budding fairy tale life. If you decide to continue to work with me, I will be there the whole time, checking in with you and helping you overcome obstacles that you come across as you build your ideal fairy tale life.

 

I live in the North Pole/New Zealand/Insert any global location here. Can you work with my time zone?

If you have a decently functioning internet connection (fast enough for Skype or Google Calling) then I can work with you no matter where you are. I started Fairy Tale Life Coaching while living in a third world country where my husband does humanitarian aid work. I have spent most of my life in North Carolina and California (opposite coasts of the U.S.A.) so I understand that it’s a small world after all.  One more caveat – the only language I speak well enough to coach in is English, but if you are reading this, than that shouldn’t be a problem for you.

One wonderful benefit of coaching people all over the world is that your time zone might allow for coaching at more convenient hours for you. For example, if you are in the U.S.A. or Australia and need coaching outside of normal 9-5 working hours (say early in the morning or late at night) there’s a chance that those times might fall within my working hours.

While I do travel frequently, my regular time zone currently is Istanbul time (UTC or GMT +2).

 

Do you have a refund policy?

Yes I do! My refund policy applies to your first paid session of coaching. It allows you to get a full refund with no questions asked within 14 days of your session.

There are plenty of reasons that we might not be a good coach/client match, and if that’s the case, then just send me a quick email to request your money back for a session. I do not offer refunds for any of the coaching packages, because people who book those already know that I am a well-matched coach for them. If you aren’t sure if coaching with me is the best use of your money, I encourage you to book one session before booking any packages. If you decide to ask for a refund, please do so within 14 days of your first paid session. Requests for refunds after 14 days may not be honored. You will know almost instantly after our first session if coaching with me was valueable for you, your art, and your income. If you email me asking for a refund, my promise to you is that I won’t ask you any questions, but I will simply honor your request and give you a full refund for your session.

 

Do you offer discounts of any kind (like a family and friend discount, for example)?

I don’t offer discounts, but I do occasionally offer vouchers for free coaching for you AND for you to share with friends. Make sure you are signed up on my email list to be updated when I do offer free vouchers. I consider all of my clients to be family and friends, so I don’t offer a specific discount for family in friends. Instead, I try to price my offerings at a rate that seems fair for everyone. As I’m growing as a coach, having a busier practice, and offering ever more value to my clients, my rates will go up. So make sure you sign up now for coaching!

 

How do I know that coaching won’t be a waste of money for me?

There IS risk involved in every decision we make in life. However, I have tried to make coaching as low-risk a decision as possible with my refund policy. (See above.) You will know after your first session if I can help you feel more confident about your ability to make income from your art. As we all know, confidence is everything. Confidence is the spark that lights the fires of action, consistency, growth, and creativity. Confidence will help you incorporate the rituals that will bring you income from your art. My goal is for your investment in coaching to result in a payoff – financial and in every way – that truly makes the difference in your life.

 

What if something comes up and I can’t make my scheduled coaching session?

I totally get that life happens. You could get that call about the Rockettes audition. Your kitten could come down with the flu or sudden, unexplained hair loss. You could just forget. No worries. You can reschedule your session up to three times. There’s a 3-time rescheduling limit so that you can hold yourself accountable to getting the coaching you want. If you miss a session after rescheduling three times, that session is gone for good. Knowing that a session expires after rescheduling three times helps my clients prioritize the needs and goals we are working on through coaching.

 

Why do you coach and write content to help artists grow as entrepreneurs?

Great question! Because I believe in magic.

Not in a rabbits coming out of hats way, exactly.  I believe magic is love and fun combined. I believe we each create our own magic.

We create our own magic by designing our own fairy-tale lives no matter what other people expect or think. True peace, joy, and fulfillment comes from authenticity. And to be authentic, we need to stop worrying about what other people think. We need to embrace our own crazy, tiara-wearing, glitter-loving ways. Or whatever our “thing” is.  I love helping people embrace and love their lives.
